Speaking about the achievement, Dave said:
“Second Number One album. A lot of emotions but this is the work of the people, the best supporters on earth… my family and friends but most importantly God,” Dave said after finding out he had bagged the top spot. “For this, we give God the glory. 74,000 album sales in one week and it’s God’s doing. It’s our Number One. History.”
